Sertraline, the active ingredient in Zoloft, is a very low dose selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) that helps increase the serotonin levels in your brain. When taken at a low dosage, it can also help control premature ejaculation during the times that count without numbing the penis.
*The SSRI class of drugs, including Sertraline, is FDA approved to treat depression, anxiety and certain other mood disorders. Treatment for these conditions is not currently offered through hims.
Doctors recommend Sertraline for men who have already tried a topical solution for premature ejaculation. If this is the case for you, this may be your next go-to.
If your doctor prescribes Sertraline, you will receive five, 50 mg tablets in each of your Hims Sertraline monthly packages. Take a single dosage as needed 4-8 hours before having sex.

SERTRALINE and other antidepressant medicines may increase suicidal thoughts or actions in some people 24 years of age and younger, especially within the first few months of treatment or when the dose is changed. Watch for these changes and call your healthcare provider right away if you notice new or sudden changes in mood, behavior, actions, thoughts, or feelings, especially if severe. Pay particular attention to such changes when SERTRALINE is started or when the dose is changed.
Before taking SERTRALINE, tell your doctor and pharmacist about all prescription and over-the-counter medications and supplements you take or plan to take including: those to treat migraines, psychiatric disorders (including other antidepressants or amphetamines) to avoid a potentially life-threatening condition called Serotonin Syndrome; aspirin, other NSAID pain relievers, or other blood thinners because they may increase the risk of bleeding.
Do not stop SERTRALINE without first talking to your healthcare provider. Stopping SERTRALINE may cause serious symptoms, including anxiety, irritability, high or low mood, feeling restless or sleepy; headache, sweating, nausea, dizziness; electric shock-like sensations, shaking, and confusion.
Some people are at risk for visual problems such as eye pain, changes in vision, or swelling or redness around the eye. You may want to undergo an eye examination to see if you are at risk and get preventative treatment if you are.
SERTRALINE can cause sleepiness or may affect your ability to make decisions, think clearly, or react quickly. You should not drive, operate heavy machinery, or do other dangerous activities until you know how SERTRALINE affects you.
